Race to the Rescue is a Chinese DVD featuring five episodes from the sixteenth series.


It is Flynn the Fire Engine's first day out on the road, having had his road wheels fixed by Victor. Now Flynn can roll on the roads as well as the tracks! But Flynn isn't happy. His road wheels are wobbling and Charlie is laughing at him: "The Big Red Wobble on Wheels"!

Then, Rocky tells Flynn that the Fat Controller's shed is on fire. It's an emergency and Flynn must get there as soon as possible! The fastest way there is along the roads. But Flynn won't go by road. He's too wobbly and feels too silly! So, he goes the long way, on the tracks. He won't even roll onto the road to help his friends Bertie and Butch. At last, Flynn arrives at the burning shed - late and very flustered! The Fat Controller is cross but when he sees how fast Flynn puts out the fire... he beams with delight. Flynn isn't a Big Red Wobble on Wheels! He is a hero!
